Quick Hits: 6/14

Fill in the Gaps- I took a look at our Salary Cap numbers based on who he have signed through this season and the RFA's I think that we should sign.  I'm looking for suggestions here as to which route we should go with the remaining cash.  Come on over and play GM.

Hate - Rob Masters of Etched in Cold is a man after my own heart.  He doesn't like Chicago and, like me, doesn't like people who like Chicago...especially Red Wings fans.  Would the Palestinians ever support Israel in a war?  Then why would Detroit fans support Chicago in the Finals?  Think about it.

Numerical Odyssey: Goaltender Valuation- Chris Hollis of Motown Wings does some absolutely crazy math-related work in this post.  Follow it if you can, but it basically states that Detroit is getting top notch value for their goaltending performance...basically because Jimmy Howard (team MVP if you ask me) was one of the lowest paid players on the team.

Captain America to Join Red Wings Organization? - Brian from The Octopus Thrower examines the possibility of Chris Cheliosbecoming a suit in the Red Wings' front office.  Yzerman leaves and Chelios (finally) retires and takes his place...sounds about right doesn't it?  It would also be another kick in Chicago's teeth because Chelios would become an even bigger part of Detroit's history...(yeah Windy City kids, he DID play for Chicago before you started paying attention).

Ted Lindsay Award Winner Is... - The trio of Jennifer, Graham, and Joe from Red Wings Guy Dot Com weigh in on who they think should win the newly named Ted Lindsay Award.  Formerly known as the Lester B. Pearson Award, it is presented annually to the "most outstanding player" in the NHL as voted by fellow members of the National Hockey League Players’ Association.

Is Patrick Kane 12 Years Old - My apologies to Josh from the blog Beards of War for not finding this site more quickly.  Here is a funny read in which he has an interesting conspiracy theory about 20 Cent and what his actual age could be based on empirical evidence.  Welcome to the 'Quick Hits' fold, Josh.
